Abstract: Event detection from social media is a challenging task due to the volume, the velocity and the variety of user-generated data requiring real-time processing. Despite recent works on this subject, a generalized and scalable approach that could be applied across languages and topics has not been consolidated, yet. In this paper, we propose a methodology for real-time event detection from Twitter data that allows users to select a topic of interest by defining a simple set of keywords and a matching rule. We implement the proposed methodology and evaluate it with real data to detect different types of events.
